OpenGL, DirectX are not the programming languages, they are just the 3d libraries.

I know, but they're still used to develop games. Xbox uses Direct X, PS2 and GameCube use OpenGL

then you might as well add things like SDL and Crazy Eddies GUI, OpenAL...as they are also becoming common packages for small games.

That may be the case for PC games, but the question asked was specifically about consoles.
